Scan Procedures and Parameters

Ethics approval: All methods and procedures were approved by the Princeton University IACUC.

Animal care and housing: Princeton University is staffed with 2 full-time veterinarians and an extensive staff of veterinary and husbandry technicians. Animals are pair-housed and receive environmental enrichment consisting of toys, foraging devices, cable TV, and access to a large enrichment space.

Any applicable training: none

Anesthesia procedures: For structural and diffusion sessions (sessions 1-3), animals were first sedated with ketamine (10mg/kg IM) and maintained with isoflurane gas (2.5-3.0%). For resting state fMRI (session 4), animals were first sedated with ketamine (10mg/kg IM) and xylazine (0.5mg/kg IM), and sedation was maintained with additional ketamine doses as needed to complete the session without head or body motion.

Head fixation: Kopf 1430M MRI Stereotaxic frame

Position in scanner and procedure used: Animals were placed in the “sphinx” position.

Contrast agent: None

Physiological monitoring: For all scan sessions (1-4), Siemens wireless physiology sensors were used to monitor EKG, pulse, and respiratory rate. Body temperature was monitored using a fiber optic probe (FOTS100, BioPac Systems Inc.). For structural and diffusion sessions (sessions 1-3), an InVivo 3150 MRI Patient Monitor was used to monitor SpO2 and end tidal CO2 during structural and diffusion scan sessions.

Additional procedures: For structural and diffusion sessions (sessions 1-3), artificial ventilation was used to maintain normocapnia. For all scan sessions (1-4), normothermia was maintained using blankets and a warm water re-circulating pump (Stryker/Gaymar TP700 T/Pump) modified with long tubing to reach the MRI bore.
